yay or nay: denim on denim

Expecting to hear strong opinions on this one folks.
How do you feel about denim on denim?
Immediately when I think about that I think of this...
...and want to throw up a little.
But that was '99...here's what it looks like in 2010.
{the first annoys me but the second and third are cute}
{don't love it; don't hate it}
{Vanessa pulls it off; my guess is only someone in their early 20's or a supermodel could pull this off}

{not loving the wash on either the shirt or the shorts}
So tell me what you think! Are you wearing denim on denim? Are there only certain washes that you would do it with?
Hope you're having a great day!
xoxo

I had this thought the other day when I was at Target. I saw this really cute denim dress. You know the cute ones that button up all the way, short and has sleeves... I almost picked it up.. but something told me not to get it.

I am not a fan of the Canadian Tuxedo.

Ahhhh! That picture of Britney and JT always scares me!! When the denim is all monochromatic, I freak out, but if the washes on the denim are different enough so we can tell it's two separates I like (Katie Holmes above).

Nay.

Everytime i think of it i think of that same horrid image. Thank god justin broke it off before he started rockin overalls with denim too. Goo.

I was itching for a denim dress but eh...i'm already over it. I think this trend will die sooner thats it started.

I try to stick to no more than one denim article of clothing a day. And I can't say that I have worn a denim shirt since the 90's.

i think there's a limit... only one item of denim at a time. justin and britney look ridiculous.

katie + bret said...

I think it depends on A) who you are, B) the shade, and C) the cut. But how can you not adore Brit and Justin?! They look AMAZING. Insert the most blantanly obvious sarcasm here please.

Kristin said...

I've seen it done right...but I just don't think I could pull it off. But then I always tell people who say that to me that you never now until you try!

Carol {Everyday Delights} said...

I love that you brought back the Britney and Justin outfit - so ridiculous! What were they thinking?! haha!

I'm going to have to give it a nay....

Here's my spill, dark on the bottom/light on the top, Yes. Matchy matchy denim all around. No!
Accesories in toffee brown are a must, or a light camel colored at least!

Katy Mary said...

I don't think I would wear this trend. I don't dig the denim on denim. While I think a couple of the looks are cute (not Justing & Britney) I just don't think I'd go there.

Rasha said...

Bleh. I dont like denim on denim.

Hilary Lane said...

I agree - supermodels only!

Jen said...

I do it sometimes, but I always feel like a cowgirl when I do! I can never pull it off completely "right."

Jenni said...

It does look cute on Vanessa...but I think its the short shorts. breaks it up with lots of leg and cute boots...I remember the Brittney Justin denim look...ICK! Only to a costume party....even then I thought it was bad!
PS-I'm having a giveaway on my blog for a beautiful little carafe!!!

Seyma said...

well, not always but it looks cool sometimes.. it's very important how you match them i guess..

Claire Kiefer said...

I'm going with no on this one. I like denim in moderation, but not a fan of the Texas tuxedo!

~KS said...

Can't do it. Mental block. Maybe because we grew up in the 90s when it was... well... puketastic.

I love my denim jacket, but must pair it with khankis or white pants... no demin on denim for me. Probably ever.
